     Lieutenant Fetters of the army service, who flew to Chehalis from Portland in 65 minutes Monday morning, waas the guest of honor, with Sergeant Kessler, who accompanied him. Lieutenant Fetters esplained that he was covering the territory from Portland to Seattle for the government, securing data on landing places for future aerial commercial and government business, publicity for the service, maps of the districts covered, and the attitude of the public generally towards the service. He urged Chehalis to get a landing field at once, and let the public know it, for he predicted a great future for this new service. He was much pleased with his reception here. Following his address, a motion prevailed that the board of trustees of the club at once take steps to secure such a field.
